Community Engagement

Welcome to our YCC Community page.
Our community services include public access to computers, occasional childcare and service referrals. We develop curriculum and manage projects. And we offer our range of facilities for hire to community groups, businesses and the general public.

At YCC, we have a long history of developing partnerships and networking with community groups, service providers, and business and government agencies. Our aim is to share resources and skills to ensure community needs are met and to maximise outcomes for our community.

Here we share community and YCC news and events with you. We’ll also give you links to other websites of interest.

Ongoing Community Projects

The Nourish Project – Food Relief Program

The Nourish Project rescues surplus food from landfill and transforms this donated food into nutritious meals which are distributed and provided free to people in need. With the support of so many, we have already delivered over 1000 meals in 2021.
